bwa-meth 0.2.3 Fast and accurante alignment of BS-Seq reads
BWA-Meth works for single-end reads and for paired-end reads from the directional protocol (most common). It uses the method employed by methylcoder and Bismark of in silico conversion of all C's to T's in both reference and reads. It recovers the original read (needed to tabulate methylation) by attaching it as a comment which BWA appends as a tag to the read. It performs favorably to existing aligners gauged by number of on and off-target reads for a capture method that targets CpG-rich region.
